2017-18 President's Letter

By Oak Leafs, 09/01/17, 9:15AM CDT


Welcome Oak Leaf players, families and fans!

I would like to thank you for your continued support for our organization. Everyone in our Oak Leaf family is looking to another exciting season in the Midwest High School Hockey League (MHSHL). We have a talented core of returning players from last year. We welcome our 11 new incoming players from the draft.

We are excited that we have the entire coaching staff returning for the 2017-2018 season. Scott Long begins his third season as our Head Coach and his returning staff include; Robbie George, Jade Pospeshil and Derek Hender. The staff and team have done a great job in working in the offseason on and off the ice.

The board would like to thank all the parents and volunteers who help make our program a success. Without their time, dedication and support we could not achieve the success that we do.

Finally, we thank our loyal Oak Leaf fans who cheer us on each game. The players truly enjoy the high school atmosphere and having large crowds and their friends to cheer them on. Our fans are a large part of our home ice advantage. Let’s continue our Oak Leaf Sportsmanship and make this year one to remember!

Let's Go Leafs!!


Doug Burns
President of the Des Moines Oak Leafs Hockey Club
